America Saves Week 2013
This year’s 2013 America Saves Week is February 25 – March 2. The Cooperative Extension System is an active partner with the Consumer Federation of America, the American Savings Education Council, and America Saves, who is the annual America Saves Week host. The goal is to encourage people, particularly lower-income families, to save money and build wealth. The event offers information and advice on paying down debt, building an emergency fund, and saving for a home, education, and retirement. In 2012, 29 state Extension partners participated by promoting the goals of this initiative and providing essential information to consumers across the country. The following resources are intended to assist Extension educators to get involved, help consumers assess their finances and adopt healthy financial habits, and provide educational information.
